Message for the Day….” What is a true Pilgrimage and the Benefits arising out of it ….”

If you visit holy places like going for a picnic without necessary mental preparation to receive God’s Grace, you will be a nuisance, spoiling the atmosphere of the sacred place. You go from place to place, like postal parcels, collecting impressions on the outer wrapper, not on the core of your being. You do not allow the holiness of the place to act on your mind. As a result of the pilgrimage, your habits must change for the better, your outlook must widen, your inward look must become deeper and become more steady. You must realise the omnipresence of God, and the Oneness of Humanity. You must learn tolerance and patience, charity and service. After the pilgrimage is over, sitting in your own home and ruminating over your experiences, you must determine to seek the higher, the richer and the more real experience of God-realisation. I bless you that you may form that determination and strive step by step to achieve that Goal.

Message for the Day….” Education must be for life, not for a living. Women have proved throughout the centuries in Indian history that they have the courage, the vision, and the intelligence needed to dive into the depths of spiritual science and discipline.”

Bharatiya Culture has world-wide presence since it can correct and canalise the human emotions and motives along healthy productive routes. It is sacred and it can establish peace and joy in the hearts of all. It seeks to strike roots into life through the mothers, and the children on their laps. Women have been its custodians and promoters; men have a secondary role. And, among women, the young students who in the coming days will become leaders must become examples whom all women will wish to emulate; they must understand and practise this culture, so that it may be preserved and it may flourish. The keenness to acquire education is now very evident among the daughters of the nation, and so great hope can be placed on them, in this field of reconstruction. Education must be for life, not for a living. Women have proved throughout the centuries in Indian history that they have the courage, the vision, and the intelligence needed to dive into the depths of spiritual science and discipline.

வாரம் ஒரு கவிதை ….”தேநீர்ப் பொழுதுகள் “

தேநீர்ப் பொழுதுகள்
===================
காலை பொழுது மலர்ந்ததும் வேண்டும் தேநீர் சிலருக்கு
மாலையில் ஒரு “நொறுக்குடன் ” தேவை தேநீர் சிலருக்கு !
தேநீர் நேரம் என்று ஒன்று  பணிநேரத்தில் இருந்தாலும்
தேநீர் ஒன்றே தலையாய பணியாக மாறும் சிலருக்கு !
தேநீர் பொழுதை  ஒரு விருந்தாக மாற்றி வணிகம்
வர்த்தகம் செய்யும் வித்தகர்களும் உண்டு உலகில் !
தேநீரும் ஒரு “பொறையும்” மட்டுமே  உணவாக
மாறும் மூன்று வேளையும் ஒரு உழைப்பாளிக்கு !
தேநீர் பொழுது அவனுக்கு ஒரு பொழுது போக்கு
அல்ல ! தன் பொழுதை வீணாகப் போக்குபவனும்
அவன் இல்லை !

Message for the Day….” Mother must set an example in making the shrine the heart of the household. She must enforce discipline over children in personal cleanliness, in humility, hospitality, good manners and in acts of service. “

Home is the temple where the family, each member of which is a moving temple, is nurtured and nourished. Mother is the high priest of this house of God. The centre of every home must be the shrine; the fragrance of flower and incense emanating from there must pervade the home and purify it. Mother must set an example in making the shrine the heart of the household. She must enforce discipline over children in personal cleanliness, in humility, hospitality, good manners and in acts of service. She must persuade children to revere elders by example and precept, and to allot some time both in the morning and evening for prayer and silent meditation. Humility is the incense with which the house is filled. Reverence is the lamp that is lit with love as the oil and faith as the wick. I bless you that through your faith and strength, devotion and dedication may increase in this land.

Message for the Day…. ” Know that every other person has in their heart of hearts a picture of the God you revere. Recognise it and reconcile your misunderstandings”

When you step into a house and on the walls of the shrine room you see a picture of Mine, do you not feel a wave of reverence and kinship surging within you? You may not like that person for any other reason, but this picture will bring them closer to you though the owner of the house may be your rival in the professional field. Even the person, whom you were treating as your worst adversary has the selfsame light in their innermost heart as yours! Know that every other person has in their heart of hearts a picture of the God you revere. Recognise it and reconcile your misunderstandings; close up all gaps and be brothers and sisters in pilgrimage, encouraging and inspiring each other along the arduous road. In the glory of that all-enveloping Light, all hate and envy, which are the evil progeny of darkness, will vanish. Know that the same light is in all.

Message for the Day….” ” Consider all whom you meet as the Lord of Srirangam, your Master. Show untarnished Prema (love) towards all who come to you.”

The emperor of the Cholas sought to visit the Srirangam Gopuram temple, of which he had heard much. He got his chariot ready and moved forward many times in six months; but every time a recluse in ochre robes with a rosary around his neck and a halo around his head intercepted the vehicle. When the emperor alighted to honour him, he kept him engaged in conversation which was so enchanting that he forgot his journey and its goal. One day, when he lamented over his failure to fill his eyes with the glory of Srirangam, the Lord appeared before him and said: “Why do you lament? I am the Master who came to you so often as soon as you set out for Srirangam; recognise Me in all, that is the genuine pilgrimage to Srirangam.” Consider all whom you meet as the Lord of Srirangam, your Master. Show untarnished Prema (love) towards all who come to you.

வாரம் ஒரு கவிதை….” பதில் இங்கே ….கேள்வி எங்கே ? “

பதில் இங்கே …கேள்வி எங்கே ?
==============================
கேள்வி கேட்டால்தானே  கிடைக்கும் பதில்
எந்த கேள்விக்கும் இருக்குமே  ஒரு பதில்
தகவல் அறியும் சட்டம் இருக்கு இப்போ
கைவசம்…உனக்கு என்ன தகவல்
தேவை …சொல்லு தம்பி !கிடைக்கும்
உனக்கு நிச்சயம் ஒரு பதில் !
கேள்வி நான் கேட்கமாட்டேன் என்று
நீ ஒதுங்கினால் கேட்பதற்கு ஆள் இல்லை
நான் வைத்ததுதான்  சட்டம் என்று ஆட்டம்
போடுமே ஒரு பெரிய கூட்டம் !
கேட்பது உன் உரிமை மட்டும் அல்ல
கடமையும் கூட ! நீ கேட்க நினைப்பதை
கேட்டு விடு …உன் கேள்விக்கு பதிலும்
வாங்கி விடு ! இன்று நீ கேள்வி
கேட்காவிட்டால் , ஏன் கேட்கவில்லை அப்போதே கேள்வி
நீ என்று உன்னையே கேள்விக்குறியாக
மாற்றி ஒரு கூட்டம் சரமாரி கேள்விக்கணை
தொடுக்கும் உன் மேல் !
மறக்காதே கேள்வி கேட்க …விட்டுக்கொடுக்காதே
உன் கேள்வி கேட்கும் உரிமையை !
